So much has happened since we last caught up. Welcome to the world niece M!
And welcome C!
They were born days apart in the same hospital as my Dad is in, whilst he recovers from his stroke. So I’ve been busy doing ward rounds.
We have visited the girls a few times, but since I care so much about them, we are mostly staying away! With three young boys, we are hardly a calming presence.
To think H was a newborn 6 months ago.
Now he is crawling, and pulling himself up. He is still as delightful as ever and I am still smitten.
Went to the Red Rose Fund’s annual gala the other night. This year’s charity was the pyjama foundation, where pyjama angels spend an hour a week reading to a foster child. The theme was Once Upon a Time and it was held at Gabbinbar homestead in Toowoomba.
I wore the Camilla dress with my Game of Thrones bolero (still grieving the loss of Jon Snow).
They went high-tech this year and had an online auction component. I think my husband won some Broncos tickets.
Another big change for us is the return of J (our au pair) to Germany. I think she deserves her own post (one day I will write one). But for the record, I love her and am forever indebted. She was a Mary Poppins- structured, organised, reliable, warm, generous, fair.
Here we are doing the discover Brisbane bus tour on one of her last nights.
My baby boy turned 5 yesterday, but I’m leaving the details for another post. Already so many big news stories. To be continued….
